chorizo & bean salad

This is one of my very favourite quick mid-week meals to make. I call it a salad, but it’s very filling, so we have it as a main course on its own.

It tastes fantastic the following day too, so save the left overs for your lunch box. That is, if you’re not phased about eating garlicky lunches at work.

Bean & chorizo salad

Drain both cans of beans. Rinse your beans under runny water until the water runs clear. Rinse the green beans & chop off the ends. Cut in +/- 4cm pieces.

Slice the chorizo in rings, heat your pan on medium heat & spray with non-stick spray.  Add the sausage to the pan & keep tossing until the chorizo’s have changed colour on both sides. Now add all the beans in the pan.

      It sure is yummy! I buy Chorizo at super markets (Woolies or Pick ‘n Pay) or even at Fournos in the cold meat section.
